Dilate

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Thom Owens
Ani DiFranco doesn't really expand her sonic palette on Dilate, but she doesn't need to. DiFranco racked up a dedicated cult audience on the basis of her conviction. There's not much melody on any of her songs, but there are messages and, thankfully, a fair share of humor. Dilate suffers from a bit too much repetition, but when DiFranco lands on a good hook -- such as "Superhero" or "Done Wrong" -- the results suggest that she could reach a wider audience.

    yes, okay

    this was my introduction to ani difranco. at the time i had just gotten out of a long term relationship, so it really appealed to me in a personal way. the only reason i gave it 4 out of 5 is because of "amazing grace" which i've never liked. she puts a semi-interesting twist to it, but overall, it really takes away the feel of the album. though i certainly wouldn't send most people to this record as a first, it's a beautiful piece of work that will always have a special place in my collection. right on, ani d. you really are all the hype.

    My First Ani CD

    I heard this album for the first time in a sandwich shop while eating some grub...and WOW! I loved her voice sooo much that I asked a worker what we were listening to. He told me and I headed for the nearest music store and bought this album. Being my first Ani CD I had nothing to compare it to, other than all the other music I listen to. Her voice is amazing on this CD and even after hearing many more of her albums this remains one of my favorites! Listen for yourself...
